Has anyone ever used Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Liquid Soap to wash their cup? I looked in the memories and did not see anything.

I was planning to use the eucalyptus (sp?) one to clean mine. *standing by to see what you find out*

Dr. Bronners tea tree soap is popular 'round here.

I've used it once or twice, though I prefer tea tree.

The only Dr. Bronner's I've ever had a problem with is almond -- for some reason, it left my cup smelling weird and gross.

I've never used almond myself, but popular opinion that I've read/heard is that is always leaves a weird aftersmell that isn't nearly as pleasant as it smells before use, no matter what you use it for.

Tea tree for me... The antiseptic qualities of tea tree oil are why I use it for the cup.

oh goodness i agree with this. my husband thought it would be a good idea to try out my peppermint pulse point lotion once on me.... holy s**t that was the worse experience ever.

Ooh, I definitely have some of that soap - a bit of peppermint and almond remaining, plus a new bottle of lavender. I'd try it, though I'm a little worried about the possibility of soap in my lady business, but Doc Bronner's is probably the safest soap you'll get. I'd use the unscented kind if I had it.

I use lavender all the time with no problems. The only thing I can think of with peppermint is you'll know rather quickly if you didn't rinse it all the way, but otherwise go for it. Better than the other soaps out there!

I concur on all points. :)

If you are going to use *ANY* type of soap on your cup, make sure you rinse it very very well. Soap residue on your cup or even on your hands can feed a yeast infection. Or just lead to irritation.

Just plain water is the best.

I used to use it pretty much exclusively on my cup. Never had any problems, and it got my cup nice and clean.

I know I have used tea tree and almond, probably citrus and peppermint too. Just make sure you rinse it really, really well with water so there is no soap residue. I am pretty sure using Dr. Bronner's soap on my cup without thoroughly rinsing it caused me to get bacterial vaginosis.

I think Dr. Bronner's has citric acid in it, and I'm not sure acid is good for the silicone. But it's one of the last ingredients, so probably not in high concentration.

Not the liquid, but the peppermint bar soap. It's what I generally keep in the shower, so it's what I wash my cup with. I just make sure to rinse it really well, and I've never had any problems.
